Tales through images by Paolo Longo on show in Lisbon

Stories of persons, true life stories, and images of everyday life that could appear to be trivial and unoriginal but that conceal the politics, history, culture, emotions, wishes and secrets of a society,” said Paolo Longo, a journalist of the RAI public broadcaster and a foreign correspondent for 25 years, in describing the photographs he united in the exhibition ‘Racconti’ (‘Tales’), on display at the Italian Cultural Institute in Lisbon until 28 February. Paolo Longo worked twelve years in New York, two years in Jerusalem and eleven years in China, up to 2015, before moving to Lisbon, where he now lives.

“Every snapshot is a tale – says the author – and every image that the camera nails to a given time and space can be a tale that refers us to other stories, other tales.” Following this thread, the tales start in Tokyo and then move across China, North Korea, Cambodia, India, Afghanistan, Yemen, the Palestinian Territories, and finish up in Lisbon.
